“Alexander’s Feast, or The Power of Music” was one of Handel’s most popular works, which he often revived when he needed a guaranteed box office success. Dramatic and pictorially vivid, the work is neither opera nor yet a full-scale oratorio. At a feast presented by Alexander the Great, Timotheus the court musician demonstrates music’s power over human emotions and its ability to bring about harmony between man and the universe.

Henry Mollicone- Beatitude Mass: for the Homeless (2006) The text incorporates the words from the Latin Mass with English texts by William Luce drawn from interviews conducted with people living in homeless shelters.
